PRIVATE MID CENTURY CLASSIC WITH FANTASTIC VIEWS TOT#6084

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Your Personal Second Home In The Desert

This beautiful mid century ranch home, custom built in 1955 on a .25 acre lot, is located in the quiet and serene Taquitz River Estates. This area features some of the earliest custom homes and largest lots that were developed in early Palm Springs. The home is very private – surrounded by lush walls of hedges. Entry to the home is through an electric gate from the street or a secured entry gate leading to the front courtyard.

The open living/dining area is accessible through French doors to the front yard with desert landscaping with an additional covered seating area and through 2 sets of double French doors to the patio/terrace and large landscaped backyard. The focal point of this living space is a floor to ceiling double-sided brick fireplace with glass flames. This area includes seating and dining areas, large flat screen wall mounted TV, Wi-fi , and a music system wired throughout the home.

The house is newly furnished like your own home with a stylish glass/Lucite dining table, mid century seating and attention to detail. It is comfortable and inviting.

The kitchen is updated and modern with spacious cabinets and Caesar stone counters. It is fully equipped with beautiful new glassware, china, serving dishes and platters, new gourmet cookware and all the items that you prefer in your own home.

The bedrooms are all private and in separate areas of the home. The master bedroom has a walk in closet, bath with shower over tub and French doors which open and overlook the back yard and pool. The second bedroom, accessed through the hall , has French doors to the side desert yard, a full wall of closet space and an adjacent bath with an open rain shower design. This bedroom/bath offers additional privacy from the rest of the home.

The third bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen, with French doors to the front desert landscaping and a small but functional bathroom with a toilet and shower. This bath also provides access to the back yard and can be used from the terrace/pool area.

Each bedroom has new high-end linens, plush towels, pool towels and all the requisite comforts for your stay.

The seamless indoor/outdoor flow continues to a large lattice covered terrace with seating and dining areas overlooking the huge pool- over eight feet deep. The rear yard contains custom patio furniture, beautiful lounge chairs, seating areas with umbrellas, a covered cabana, BBQ, and a large grass area with total privacy.

On warmer days, the misting system surrounds the terrace and dining areas for your comfort. In the evening, the landscape and the pool lighting create a casual resort feel for enjoying the beautiful desert evenings.

The south facing yard, pool and large in ground spa provide the backdrop to spectacular/mesmerizing mountain views as well as the hundreds of palm trees the city is known for. This property is a stunning example of how to live in Palm Springs.

The home is conveniently located 5-10 minutes from the airport. It is a short walk/or drive to downtown shops and restaurants as well as all the world class Palm Springs area activities.

Rarely is a home of this comfort and quality available as a rental.

This home is available on minimum stay of 4 days. Additional days are prorated on a per day weekly basis.

There is a $200.00 cleaning fee and an optional fee of $50.00 per day to heat the pool.

GREAT PLACE, CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN BUT FAR ENOUGH AWAY TO RELAX AND ENJOY

  • 5 of 5
The house is very nice and well maintained. Instructions for operating the amenities were clear and simple. We really enjoyed our time there. We were very close to all of the events happening over time in PS but the house also offered us refuge and quiet from the crowds too. Also, inquiring about the house, reserving and checking in was easy and Michael and David were very nice to work with. I would recommend this house without reservation.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderfully refinished home for a month; I could have stayed forever. The house was very comfortable with every need provided for. The outside areas were also fantastic - patio table and pool were great. It was located in a quiet, private area of South Palm Springs which was great for biking and walking.

FABULOUS PALM SPRINGS RESORT HOME

  • 5 of 5
Spent a long weekend at this home and loved it. The house is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. But the yard - with enormous pool, hot tub, grassy lawn, cabana and southwest mountain view is FABULOUS! WE spent most of our time on the well furnished, sunny outdoor terrace. My dog loved sunning in the yard. South Palm Springs location is perfect - great neighborhood for biking and walking and close to everything. Recommend this enthusiastically.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about our experience here was perfect. Where to start?

Reservation & Communication
Michael made everything so easy and clear in advance and even called after we got home ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We've rented quite a few homes and I've never interacted with an owner that was more customer service-oriented and concerned about ensuring everything was ready for us when we arrived. David, the caretaker, was timely, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.

The House
The kitchen was stocked with everything you could want from a cocktail shaker to zip lock bags and all shapes and sizes of serving trays to a single serve coffee maker. All items were in great condition and easy-to-find. There wasn't a single item that we thought of while we were cooking that wasn't available. Really, they thought of everything.

Our favorite parts of the main living area were hands down the gas fireplace (great for chillier mornings and evenings) and the full-house stereo system. The back of the house opens up completely to the backyard making the house and yard feel like one big space during the day.

Bedrooms were nice size and all had TVs and like-new bathrooms (and towels). Beds were comfortable, sheets and pillows were high quality. Tons of closet space.

The Yard
The backyard was completely private and had a beautiful view of the mountains. We paid extra to heat the pool and hot tub -- a must if you visit in the winter. Both the gas grill and outdoor dining area were put to good use and many a nap was taken in the cabana area. There was plenty of outdoor furniture and it was all like new.

The location and neighborhood was perfect for us -- filled with mid-century homes, wide streets and tons of quiet. Easy walking distance to a fantastic coffee shop (Koffi) and to town.

It all adds up to a great vacation thanks to a lovely home with every attention to detail (the perfect weather helped, too). Thank you, Michael, for sharing your home with us! We hope to return and would highly recommend to others.

Our kids' reviews of the house:
-14 year old: "Awesome."
-11 year old: "Can we get a fire place like that?"
